Excerpt


~ELORA

If I could choose any moment to instantly vaporize it would be now. Hell, I’d settle for a teleportation beam to Mars. Maybe right before death by suffocation, I would be acquainted with the god of war himself, Ares.

Just then, I felt a warm arm circle around my waist and I was pulled up next to a body carved from a slab of stone. When I turned to look, it was my neighbor. “Hey baby.” Leaning against me, he set a gallon of milk into my basket and then kissed me before I could speak. It wasn’t a quick peck on the lips; no he cradled his hands on either side of my face, pressed his lips softly against my own, nibbled on my lip and caressed my tongue with his. Wow! Ask and you shall receive. After a moment, he looked up as if oblivious to the fact that we were not alone. “Friends of yours?”
 

The Writing Process

When I have to write anything the most daunting thing is starting with a blank page, of course you can't really start anywhere else, but I would imagine a lot happens before you put 'pen to paper' (so to speak!) when you're writing a book.  Can you tell us about your writing process? 
- what are your key or critical steps in converting an idea to a finished product?
To be quite honest I just sit down and write. Several friends refer to my style of writing as free writing. Once the character has taken up residence in my brain it just progresses from there. Sometimes I can write out chapters at a time, while other times I go days or even weeks without ever opening my laptop.
- does every idea/concept develop into something?  If not, what percentage would you keep?
Most of the time yes, but not always I would say 90% of my ideas don’t change while 10% does, but the 10% usually drives me crazy for several days.
- are there rituals/'must haves' for your writing process?
Yes and no. I only write at night usually between the hours of 11pm and 2am, and my writing time is usually accompanied by a snack and a can of coke. Strangely enough Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday are my most inspirational nights of the week to write.
